Network of Complementary Schools
St. Benedict's is a member of the Network of Complementary Schools, a unique organization of 26 public and private schools/school systems, located in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, which organizes and sponsors individual student exchanges among member schools. Each of the schools in the Network has a unique and unusual program or programs. Students who visit another Network school have an opportunity to explore career options, to focus on scientific disciplines, to learn more about social institutions, to pursue artistic interests, and to learn about different lifestyles and cultures.
The Network’s website details each member school's offerings. Individual exchanges last for two or three weeks. There is no charge to individual students other than transportation and spending money, and financial aid is available. St. Benedict's students' Network trips are almost always during Spring Phase in May.
